Large VM copy to vCloud Director fails with "OVF Import failed. Attempted read from closed socket." error (2041322)


Copying a large virtual machine to vCloud Director can fail during the "import to destination cloud" phase for the following reasons:
  • Destination vCloud Director does not have enough storage on transfer spooling area 
  • Transfer session timed out


  1. Increase the transfer spooling area of vCloud Director by mounting the required storage to /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/data/transfer.
  2. Increase the vCloud Director transfer session timeout: 
    1. Log on to vCloud Director as a system administrator.
    2. Select the System > Administration tab, then select General in the Administration panel.
    3. Under Timeouts, increase the Transfer session timeout.
